Do I need to compress the springs before removing the top bolts? if so, can I use a simple compression tool that basically looks like two giant screws with hooks to go on the springs? My Honda, the unit came out as one without any hassle. Or do I need to it to a shop?Well it depends, if your mechanically inclined. You should be good. The hardest part is getting the front struts off the spindle housing. But if u have a strut spreader, you will be fine, its like 13 bucks.
There is other methods as well if u do not want to buy a strut spreader.
As far as the rear shocks, its a joke...
